Did you know that the Arboretum has fabulous color and fragrance even in the middle of winter? Head over to the Arboretum this winter for a month of fun and exploration. Follow the scavenger hunt to discover the many varieties of witchhazels (Hamamelis) growing at the Arboretum. Ranging in color from yellow and orange to pink and red, witchhazels are some of the first harbingers of spring. Compare their beautiful flowers and take in their heady scent.
